Description/Notes: 

University of Maryland Extension in partnership with the Talbot County Office of Economic Development will host an evening workshop on sustainable forestry at the Talbot County Community Center in Easton.  The presentation will be held on Tuesday, April 29th in the Wye Oak Room and is free to the public.

 Forests today are managed using sustainable forestry practices, which include a toolbox of techniques and management decisions to help ensure we retain the forest resource opportunities we have today for the future. This workshop will discuss how our present forests developed and the principles and practices of forest and wildlife ecology that underlie the management practices that are used to ensure a healthy and productive forest ecosystem. The role of landowners, foresters, and loggers in implementing sustainable forestry will be discussed as well as regulations that exist to protect the forest resource for future generations. This is the place to bring your questions about forestry and have them answered.

The workshop is free and open to all. For more information or to register visit www.umeforestry.eventbrite.com or  call 410-822-1244 or sdill@umd.edu.
